Playing a 'home' game against Alianza Petrolera 100 miles away from their usual ground, which is being renovated, Huila attracted just two paying customers through the gate.

Huila CEO Carlos Barrero reflected on the reality of the situation, saying: "Our gate receipts were PS8 and it costs PS5,300 to rent the place. Two fans. That's it."
